Image of the day: Tracking giraffes in South Africa

sarah bunney giraffeI snapped this bull giraffe whilst doing fieldwork in South Africa in the summer of 2012. We’d spent all afternoon tracking his herd on foot, finally catching up with them in one corner of the reserve when they’d grown tired of playing hide and seek! This photo is deceptive in its scale – a bull male giraffe can reach heights of well over 5 metres.
